Labour In Vain Drove is on the outskirts of the tiny village of Billinghay in Lincolnshire, East Midlands, England, and passes through ancient, cultivated fields. In Anglo Saxon times, before they drained the marshes, farmers drove their droves of livestock across the high spot so they didn’t get their feet wet.

Nowadays, Labour In Vain Drove is a connecting lane between two minor roads that dog legs around a cottage. Perhaps the owner told the road builder, ‘you’ll labor in vain, drove builder though you may think yourself one, because I and my cottage are staying put, right here, forever.’ Take a walk.
